    Your machine must have a server running and it must be set up to serve PHP files. Apache is a good server. You don't bother to mention anything about your system, so Google for LAMP or WAMP installations or download them separately and roll your own.

    you cannot run php natively on a windows machine. Turn off IIS ( webserver ) and install WAMP . It has a mysql database,php, and an apache webserver. Which you will be able to run and test your php code on.
